We will have dessert afterwards at a destination to be determined.  The club will provide soda and water.  Please RSVP to Sue Butler, and let me know what you would like to bring.

Beach Breakfast
Saturday, September 15, 2007  9:00 a.m.

The day will be handled the same way as last year.  We will probably be at the camp sites that some of the Las Madres members have.  Afterwards those that want to, can go to the beach.  RSVP to Sue Butler, let me know what you would like to bring.

Niles Canyon Railway Ride Update
On May 20, 2007, there were 16 of us, which was perfect number of adults for the caboose.  Because of the drier winter, the wild flowers weren’t as abundant, but the park lunch and dessert on the train was a great time for all of us to mingle and chat.  Afterwards some when antique shopping into the town of Niles (besides other places) and some went wine tasting.  Another fun event with our Las Madres buddies.  If we go again, we’ll need to go earlier in the year!

Update of the “BeeHive” show on June 16, 2007 in San Jose .  There were 11 of us that attended.  Jennifer loves to go to shows with me, she wants to see Jersey Boys again!  It was a great show, the music, hair and clothing styles brought back memories.  Their sound system wasn’t working 100%, but we still knew all the words.  No surprise that Randi knew someone.  One of her prior student was one of the 6 girls in the show.  (She is heading off to New York to seek her destiny.)   Afterwards we capped off the evening at the Butler ’s for munchies and drinks.

Our Condolences
Condolences go out from the Club to Jet Middaugh on the recent passing of Mike.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
    After much discussion, it was decided to try something different for coffee this year. We will be picking a new place to visit each month. We will go to that location for the entire month, unless we decide to have an "away" coffee :-)  For the month of July, we'll meet at the Starbucks/Le Boulanger at San Felipe & Yerba Buena. There is outside seating both places so if you don't see us at one, check the other. This way we can get other "goodies" for breakfast if we'd like :-)

Thursdays in July will be summer coffee at Starbucks by Cosentino's market near Silver Creek C.C.
